Assessing economic impacts of COVID-19 through input-output modelling tools
Economic models adapted to national circumstances are an important tool for the assessment of expected impacts and policy options to mitigate these impacts. They need to be readily applicable and map the effects transparently. The webinar presents an approach how national Input Output tables can be used for the realistic modelling of impacts on production and employment. The webinar gives an introduction into input-output based models and outlines options for partners to apply the approach for their own national circumstances. The webinar is targeted at public stakeholders and think tanks dealing with the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
